Hello Rowland,

That's a good question, although as it's a reverse zone then I'm thinking they just have PTR records, which they do...

   Name=218, Records=1, Children=0
     PTR: DC3 (flags=f0, serial=54, ttl=900)
   Name=219, Records=1, Children=0
     PTR: DC4 (flags=f0, serial=55, ttl=900)

...but if there's anyone in this mailing list who can verify and compare with what they then that would be marvellous!
